Abstract : The purpose of this investigation was to develop a simple and reliable method for measurement of the gas content of oil in recoil mechanisms. Several proposed methods were compared with current methods, in a series of measurements on oil samples containing known amounts of nitrogen. The best method was selected and a recommended apparatus was developed, designated the 'U-Tube Type Gas Indicator.' (Author)
